Somerset County Public Schools


Title I is a federal program which provides supplemental funding to schools that qualify as a high-poverty school according to Free and Reduced Meal Student (FARMS) eligibility.  Title I targets resources to schools where the needs are greatest.  These schools are eligible to adopt schoolwide programs to raise achievement of students by improving instruction throughout the entire school, thus using Title I funds to serve all children. The supplemental funding that schools receive may provide personnel, professional development, parent activities, and instructional programs. Just some of the examples of effective strategies are: Interventions, Instructional Facilitators & Reading Coaches, Family Liaisons, extended-day and summer school programs which are used to address the needs of students/parents in Title I schools.

  Title I Schools

There are three Title I schools in Somerset County. The following elementary schools have been identified to receive Title I supplemental funds and operate a school wide Title I program:

Princess Anne Elementary

Greenwood Elementary
